    International Quilt Festival Chicago

    I read somewhere that International Quilt Festival is coming back to Chicago. I googled it. Show will be June 21-23, 2013. It will be a show only--no classes.

    YES!!! I found this out a month or two ago....can't wait! It will be at the Rosemont location again...the others are too small. I didn't see anything about no classes...but that may be a recent change.

    Yippee!! That was the first quilt show I ever went to the year before they moved to Ohio. I went specifically to look at the "art quilts" and I came away in awe of a Dear Jane.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Jingle, On the main page of International Quilt Festival.com, on the left side where all of them are listed by city, there's a note that says no classes offered in Chicago. I didn't get much else from the listing, just a spot to request festival materials

    Yeah, I'm excited about it. DD and I are going. Shipshewana is the next weekend and we're going to that too.

    Oh wow! That is nice. It is halfway between where my son is stationed and where my family lives. It's more closer to my son. Planning in the works.

    Since I am a newbie, what would I expect to find at a quilt show, besides quilts?
